Mumbai Indians, meanwhile, are comfortably placed in the chase. They are currently on 116/2 at the end of 14 overs and need 41 runs from the final six overs to win the final and seal a record a fifth IPL title. Earlier Delhi Capitals posted 156/7 on the scoreboard after winning the toss. Trent Boult gave Mumbai Indians a great start by picking two wickets in his opening two overs, which includes the first-ball wicket of Marcus Stoinis. Rishabh Pant and captain Shreyas Iyer’s half-centuries, however, propelled Delhi to a respectable total.
